Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham injured his left knee in Sunday's win over the Rams.  We'll look for an update tomorrow, but there's not much fantasy impact here.  Gresham has topped 3 targets just twice all year.

Cardinals TEs Jermaine Gresham (back) and Troy Niklas (ankle) have been activated for training camp.  The duo figures to share receiving duties in an offense that's averaged just 92.5 TE targets in HC Bruce Arians' first 2 seasons.  Gresham and Niklas will likely need an injury to the other to provide any fantasy value.  And even then, they'd be just low-upside spot starters.

The Cardinals placed TE Jermaine Gresham on the PUP Wednesday, a day after signing the free agent. Gresham had back surgery in March. He can come off the list whenever he's ready, though staying on into the regular season would cost at least 6 games. TE Troy Niklas also landed on the active/non-football injury list with hamstring trouble. That follows a right ankle issue that cost him the final day of minicamp this spring and offseason surgery on the left ankle that "removed a tightrope," according to ESPN.com. Bottom line for fantasy owners: Don't draft a Cardinals TE.

The Cardinals have signed TE Jermaine Gresham.  The former Bengal needed offseason back surgery, but Arizona is clearly satisfied with his recovery so far.  Gresham caught 62 balls last year but averaged just 7.4 yards per catch.  His career average sits at 9.7.  There's not much physical upside here, and Gresham will now be battling Troy Niklas for targets in an offense that doesn't feature the TE in its passing game.  Neither Cardinal TE is worth drafting in standard-sized fantasy leagues.

Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham will undergo surgery this week to repair a herniated disc in his back.  The issue was reportedly discovered on a free-agent visit to Oakland.  Gresham's rehab timeline is unclear right now, but he'll obviously need to wait to land a new contract.  He turns only 27 in June and has caught at least 46 passes in all 5 of his NFL seasons.  But Gresham is only averaging 9.7 yards per catch.  He's unlikely to emerge as more than a matchup play in 2015.
